    Weird. There was a group of old handmades which were clear glass with various figures inside, though I've never seen an old one that was colored. They were called Sulfides. New ones have been created by various glass artists, but usually better centered than this one. Love to see a better, closer photo of this.

    We need better photos of it - but my initial take from that one photo is that it is not a vintage marble.

    The photos are fairly well out of focus. Two questions:

    > Is it glass?
    > Is there a seam around the marble anywhere?
